Unless you live in a cave somewhere in the mountains, you have probably heard about the Mayan calendar and the end of world. The troubling thing is the stress that some people are living with because of this prediction. Do a quick browser search and you will find out what I’m mean.
The question is are the Mayan believers justified in their fears? The answer is yes, and no.
Yes you are justified in fearing the end of days. Because they will come to an end. However, you are not justified in fearing that the Mayans are right! Because they are not. Here is why I know they are wrong.
In the book of Acts Jesus answers His disciples when they ask him about the end of days. “It is not for you to know times or periods that the Father has set by His own authority.”
So here is my point. If the Lord of all decided that the early Church didn’t need to know when the world was going to end, then He certainly would not have revealed it to a bunch of idol worshiping, human sacrificing people half a world away. So your fear the Mayans were right is unjustified.
You should fear the end of days. Because Jesus is coming soon, but I’d be surprised if it was December 21, 2012.
